Rochester writer nominated for Dayton Literary Peace Prize
A Rochester writer may win a big honor after writing a book about small acts of humanity in the face of upheaval and disaster.
P.S. (Penny) Duffy recently learned that her debut novel, "The Cartographer of No Man's Land," was one of six finalists for the 2014 Dayton Literary Peace Prize in fiction. The Dayton Literary Peace Prize is the only international literary peace prize awarded in the United States. The prize celebrates the power of literature to promote peace, social justice, and global understanding.
